World Egg Day oct 14th

The highly nutritious and brilliantly adaptable egg is the subject of a global celebration known as World Egg Day! It is a fantastic opportunity for the global egg industry and egg lovers and is celebrated annually on the second Friday in October. World Egg Day is a wonderful opportunity to let everyone know that eggs are a great, low-cost, high-quality source of nutrition that has the potential to help feed the world. The incredible egg’s ability to support not only human health outcomes but also the health of the planet and people’s livelihoods is the focus of this year’s World Egg Day theme, “Eggs for a better life.” The egg is a protein powerhouse that can be used in so many different ways and has 13 different essential nutrients all in one tasty and affordable package.

People all over the world benefit greatly from its general goodness at every age and stage of life. The egg can support physical strength, aid in child growth, and improve brain function all at once! The egg is the most environmentally friendly and cost-effective animal-source protein on the market, providing support for families worldwide and the planet as a whole in addition to its numerous nutritional benefits. One large egg contains 6g of high-quality protein and 13 essential vitamins and minerals, making it one of the world’s most nutritious foods. Even though most people don’t get enough of the nutrients in eggs, they are essential to a healthy diet if you want to stay healthy and perform at your best. Because of their nutrients’ bioavailability and density, eggs have the potential to directly improve human health outcomes all over the world, making life better for everyone. Eggs support the body’s natural immune system, promote physical growth, and aid in the brain development of children because of their high nutrient density. Eggs are comparable to some plant-based foods and are a low-impact protein source with the lowest environmental impact of common animal protein sources. The egg industry continues to actively support a better life for all by producing nutritious foods in environmentally responsible ways. For rural populations all over the world, the egg industry is a significant source of income.

Women make up a large portion of egg farmers in low- and middle-income countries, and they rely on their farms to give their children a better life. India is one of the world’s top egg producers. The nation produces approximately 83 billion eggs annually. Eggs provide a wide range of vitamins, essential amino acids, and minerals, including vitamin A, B6, B12, folate, iron, phosphorus, selenium, choline, and zinc, among others, in proportion to their calorie count, making them a healthy food with a high nutrient density. Together with a number of other essential components that are essential for both growth and good health. One of the most significant health indices that affect children’s growth and development is protein intake. Eggs are now considered “functional foods” because of their newly recognized nutrients, lutein and zeaxanthin. A food that has more health benefits than just its basic nutrient content is called a functional food. Consuming lutein and zeaxanthin have been shown in recent studies to significantly lower the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness in people over 65. Additionally, cataracts are less likely to occur. DADF hopes to raise awareness of the nutritive value of eggs by facilitating World Egg Day celebrations, which will benefit consumers and the poultry industry.

However, this is only voluntary; in order to facilitate the dissemination of information through various forums, which include doctors, nutritionists, educators, institutions for women and children, concerned policymakers, and, of course, the layer and egg processing industry, ongoing efforts are required. Stunting is a type of malnutrition in which children are shorter than usual for their age and affects an estimated one in four children under the age of five worldwide. All income levels are affected by a significant number of stunted children in India. Stunting, also known as chronic malnutrition, is associated with a number of issues, including impaired immune systems, an increased risk of sickness and disease, slowed cognitive and physical development, and an increased likelihood of dying before the age of five. Nutritionists from all over the world hold the belief that EGGS—one of the cheapest, highest-quality proteins—can be used to combat malnutrition.

Edu world sees this event celebrating World Egg Day will be a stepping stone to not only spread the knowledge of the value of eggs in human nutrition and encourage private poultry farmers to pledge support to schools, hospitals, and orphanages by supplying eggs to help provide the essential nutrition required and improve people’s overall health and diet. In India, there is a low level of awareness of eggs and their nutritive value.
